So the Philadelphia Eagles have lost three straight games, are now 4-7 on the season, and yet, somehow, are only a single game out of first in the NFC East. Don’t count them out just yet!! Yes, I’m laughing while I typed this. Things have gone from bad to worse for this Birds organization, and with the Defense giving up five passing touchdowns in each of the last two games to the Lions (with quarterback Matt Stafford) and Buccaneers (QB Jameis Winston) has taken away much of the hope for a recovery on this season. Backup quarterback Mark Sanchez has not done well at all, and even shut the voices of the Sam Bradford haters. Right now it’s all doom and gloom for Eagles fans, as we cannot believe what we are seeing. The rumors of Chip Kelly entertaining the idea of going back to college have started huge again, even prompting the Eagles head coach and General Manager to publicly address it… something he really shouldn’t have to.
The irony in all of this is that the Eagles are not out of the playoff picture, even with this record, and starting December! The NFC East, the worst division in the NFL, has a tie for first between the Giants and Redskins, with a record of 5-6. The Cowboys are pretty much officially done now that Romo is out for the rest of the season, the Giants can’t get a consistent act going, and the Redskins are still headed by Dan Snyder… enough said.
It doesn’t get easier now, as the Eagles face the Patriots on Sunday in New England. Winter is coming. The Eagles better bundle up.
